    About 4 years ago, I picked this up in a thrift store ($10). I was pretty surprised to see something of this caliber in such a place....

    At any rate, I contacted 361st AWC webpage and eventually corresponded with the moderator (an former 361st pilot). Based upon the data he had posted on former pilots and the uniform I presented here, we agreed it belonged to 1st Lt. Richard "Dick" Allen. He was the XO for a time in 1970. 1st Lt. Allen passed in the early 1990's.

    Note: The current 361st website is not the same as the one during the time I contacted them. I figure the moderator (Mike) was/is unable to keep it up (I hope he is still with us).

    I will have to go back through old e-mails to pull some more data.

    Hats off to these brave guys !

    Found this google link. 1st Lt Allen is on the roster as served with the 361st AWC. I also have the cleaning receipt from the cleaners outside the base where the 361st were located. It has his name, date, location....I found it in the breast pocket, but forgot about it when I first posted these photos. I will post it next.
